Some of my best memories growing up were of fishing, hunting, and camping in the great outdoors of Wisconsin. It's vital that we ensure those same opportunities are available for future generations. 

The Mississippi River, local wildlife refuges, and other scenic outdoor spaces are as important to our hunting, fishing and sporting traditions in Wisconsin, as they are vital to our local economies. I've made preserving and protecting our natural heritage a central part of my work in Congress. I'm working hard to make sure that our natural treasures are protected for future generations to enjoy and that our hunting traditions can be passed down to the next generation.
